Joost Emmerik (°1979) is a garden designer and researcher. Trained as an architect and urban designer at Technical University Delft in The Netherlands, he works as a designer of outdoor spaces.

A firm belief in the evoking power of gardens and a need for them in this day and age form the basis of his work. Joost searches for a serene simplicity, combining clear lines, robust materials and luscious planting into places that grow more exuberant over time. 

Joost is visiting lecturer at Technical University Delft and the Academy of Architecture Amsterdam and member of the Talent Development Advisory Committee of the Creative Industries Fund.
